Is there a story about Haiti that doesn't mention the Caribbean nation's dubious honor of being "the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere"?

Haiti's 1 Percent

Few have ever heard about Haiti's wealthy elite, most of whom came to the island from France, Lebanon, Syria, Germany, or Jamaica at the beginning of the last century -- families that chose to invest in a country where nothing seems to endure. Despite, but sometimes thanks to, the absence of a functioning government, rich Haitians have prospered mainly in the import-export business. One percent of Haitians control 50 percent of the country's economy, and its top 500 taxpayers generate 80 percent of its tax revenues. It's Not Just Obama. If 2011 was the year when governments were overthrown in the streets, 2012 could be the year when politics plays out at the ballot box.

A third of the world's nations will be holding local, state, or national elections; a number of Arab Spring countries will be putting their democratic aspirations into action; and four out of the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council -- the United States, Russia, China and France -- may retreat from the world stage as they undergo leadership transitions, with major implications for international affairs. Let's take a look at the races that will make headlines in the year to come. Type: Presidential, legislative When: Nov. 6 What to watch: With the Iowa caucuses -- the first nominating contest of the presidential campaign -- only days away, Ron Paul is surging, Newt Gingrich is sliding, and Mitt Romney is, well, proving to be the steady-as-he-goes Republican frontrunner that he's always been.

SMS being the holy grail they always wanted to replicate (can't be done, some things are too good to be true...). It started with outrageous pricing, which did not make any sense. It kept out anyone but large enterprises, mostly using BlackBerry. Finally, the prices were relaxed, consumers could afford them, the smartphone era began and the mobile revolution started.

HTTPS Everywhere

Many sites on the web offer some limited support for encryption over HTTPS, but make it difficult to use. For instance, they may default to unencrypted HTTP, or fill encrypted pages with links that go back to the unencrypted site. The HTTPS Everywhere extension fixes these problems by using clever technology to rewrite requests to these sites to HTTPS. Apparmor privoxy profile. This blog is an extension of a discussion we had at our LUG regarding security. We are reviewing both apparmor and selinux and started with apparmor.

One advantage of apparmor is that it is relatively easy to learn, but a potential downside is that as an end user you will need to learn to generate and maintain profiles. When learning to write profiles it is best to start with a smaller, simple application (rather then a large complex application such as firefox). Natural Docs. Technology / RSS platform / Newsbrain.

Modern Living / Neurotica series - Flock. Magnesium Chloride. Magnesium Chloride. The Master Magnesium Compound Magnesium Chloride is recognized by many medical professionals as the “Master Magnesium Compound” for both dietary and topical uses, due to its high potency and efficient action. Magnesium is undeniably therapeutic to the human body, yet much is left unsaid about the type and quality of various forms of magnesium. Not all types of magnesium deliver the same recognizable benefits. Like other minerals of nutritional value, magnesium occurs as various inorganic and organic forms in nature. Each of these forms has varying degrees of efficiency in human biochemistry. In supplement form, magnesium oxide, the most common form of magnesium sold in pharmacies and grocery stores, has been shown to have as low as a 4% absorption rate.

Choosing a highly soluble form of magnesium brings both high potency and superior benefits toward health. Why Magnesium Chloride? Help.
